just this

Today, I took myself on a mini-adventure. I got the opportunity to take a private tour of a vineyard that a very dear friend works at. Alas, there were no pictures to be taken. I have having too much fun hanging with my friend & getting a lesson in wine & beer making. It was a wonderful morning. And, wine & beer tastings at 10am is always a good thing in my opinion.

The rest of my day was spent running house errands & all the normal things. But, there was a new dress & shoes involved.

One day, I'm going to figure out how to do a "what I wore post". But, my husband travels so there is no one to take photos for me. I need a lesson on doing them myself.

I love it when I score.

I'm not feeling my best this evening, but I have to share my find from today. I had a few hours free while Soph was on a playdate & I decided to hit the closest Goodwill. 
I got a few clothes. One dress that I'm really excited about. 
And this. 

She needs a new coat of white & some new knobs (that I saw at another store yesterday). I thought she was going in this space in the craft room, but she doesn't quite fit. There is a second place that may be absolutely perfect for her. I can't wait to get her cleaned up. 
Price: $15. 
I HAD to get her!

Hey, buuuuuddy. I bet Pauly Shore really misses the 90's.

Sunday Shoes

As we're still in the getting to know you beginnings of this blog. Today's shoes will be a couple that I already own & love. 

Bamboo Glitter shoes. Soph calls them my Hollywood shoes. I found them for $7 & I'm pretty sure everyone needs a pair of glitter shoes.

My glow-in-the-dark zombie shoes from Iron Fist. They don't get a lot of wear, but they're ZOMBIE SHOES! 

Green Mary Janes from Seychelles. After watching the movie Penelope, I had to own a pair of green mary janes. Also, I own about 6 different pair of black mary janes. I needed to add some color. 

And my newest addition! Seychelles again. The Good Intentions T-Strap Wedge. They've only been worn once so far, but I see them getting so much play this summer. They're also amazingly comfortable which seems incredibly strange. 

Currently: wearing slip-on Converse. It is a rainy Sunday, after all. 

Happy day, everyone!

Seeds started!

This morning was full of craftiness, but the post on that will wait. 
This evening was all about roller derby & our home team, The Gate City Roller Girls. We love them & it's the only sport we get insanely excited about. Especially Soph. Watching my 9 year old cheer for badass women makes me happy. And it was a great game with Gate City beating Star City 245 to 92.

At halftime, there was a cupcake eating contest which Soph entered. She didn't win, but she got 3 cupcakes down in 2 minutes. And didn't throw up, which is what I was excited about. 

And on the way home, a double rainbow. It was an excellent Saturday.

Saturday Rain

We're having a rainy Saturday morning here. I'm not complaining. All the windows are open & the house feels wonderful. 

I have a little craft project that I want to try & tonight, Soph & I will be going to roller derby. 

What are good movies to craft to? 
Bonus points if I don't have to press pause whenever Soph is in the room. 

Have a wonderful day!

Out & about.

(Perhaps I'll remember to take photos while I'm out & about one day. Who knows.)

Today was lovely. Breakfast & shopping with my gorgeous mother. Errands in the afternoon, which included everything I need to start my seeds for the garden.
Once I picked Miss Soph up from school, we had a wonderful afternoon of reading & hammock sharing.

I discovered these while grocery shopping. Teeny graham pie crusts!

After dinner, they became mini chocolate pies.
Soph approved.

I do have to share though.

My current bff.

Friday errands. Time to get garden ready, new Bust & a fancy ring.

Late night doodles.

I could start a library of craft.

Step 1 in motivation & inspiration..

Today, I tackled my craft room. The bottom left photo shows it's former disaster status. Also, I realized I may need a fan in the room. It was steamy!
I'm so happy with my new organization. Here's hoping it brings some inspiration.

Tomorrow, shopping with my beautiful mama. Then, a Friday night with my fabulous girl.

More to come.

Welcome, welcome!

To the blog that I start & restart every few years.
Will this one make it? I have no idea.

Honestly, I find blogging to be like masturbation. Does anyone really want to know what I did with my day? I'm fascinated if they do. That's not to say that I don't read blogs. I read a ton & I adore many. So, here is my yet another attempt.

What will make this one stand out? Probably nothing.

What I will do. I'll attempt to actually document the neat things that I sometimes do. I'm damn crafty when I want to be & I'm looking for a little motivation. Perhaps this will help. At least I'm willing to try.

What could make me different? I'm a cheap bastard. I will decorate & craft from Target, Michael's & every other everyday store. And, in my humble opinion, it's not half bad. While I'd love the fancy things, they're not in the budget & even if they were, I'm still a cheap bastard.

What I won't apologize for is me. At 33, I'm pretty comfortable with who I am. Yes, I need to lose 20 pounds. Yes, I need to eat better. Yes, I have my off days. Yes, I curse like a sailor. And, yes, I really need to quit smoking. But I'm the kind of person who will only get to it when I decide it's time.

Maybe I'll succeed this time. I'm going to try. If not: no harm, no foul. I'm not the best with completing things, here's hoping that this could help change it.
